    Oregon Trail was something I played a bunch in school.

    Oh what was the gorilla game that was in ms-dos? Like built in.

    Use to play that with friends.

    I mean not counting my NES and commodore time.

    Man, according to my calculations (which are very flawed), next month will mark my 20th year of video gaming.

    Wow, what an adventure that's been.

    20 years of gaming.

    i should probably make something related to that...

    Maybe make a thread in G&T?

    Ooo! I get that sometime next year I think

    There should be a pin or a badge, like in Girlscouts

    Wait, what? Man, you started young.

    i got my first console at my 6th birthday. i got the Donkey Kong Country SNES bundle + Mario Paint.

    i mean, i had played video games before that, but that's when my collection really started.

    I should really do a big effortpost about my early gaming memories.

    i have so much i'd like to say about games like Donkey Kong Country and Chrono Trigger...

    :)

    what's there to say about donkey kong country besides that it's the greatest game ever made

    where do you go from there

    There's a lot to say about it's role in my childhood.

    I can't really remember not playing games

    I think I was put in front of a keyboard as soon as I could hold myself upright

    Many of my early memories involve games like PuttPutt and Reader Rabbit and some kind of typing language game with a color coded keyboard. Some of my favourite memories of my little brothers are squishing the three of us into a single office chair and each controlling a different part of the keyboard because none of us had big enough hands to play games on our own

    Youngins.

    Is there a list of Commodore 64 games with screenshots? There was one game I played with my Dad that was a sort of Donkey Kong knock-off. You started at the bottom of a structure and climbed ladders to get to the top, dodging tumbleweeds along the way.

    For a low, low rental fee of $8 per month.

    Buying one pays for its self in 6 months, you can carry it from ISP to ISP for minimal downtime if you're lucky enough to live in a market with competition, and the quality of the equipment will be much higher,

    I paid $70 for my modem in August of 2013 and have been using it since.

    Plus, when you move to an area and get a different ISP, you don't have to have a technician come to your place to set it up. You can just plug it it and activate it over the phone/online and get same-day internet.

    Definitely look up which modems are compatible with which company. Also, some third-party modems are more of a hassle to connect than the ISP's, but IMO it's worth it.

    Honestly, I'd be more concerned if a candidate was apprised of twitter hashtag minutiae, because they should be doing their actual jobs, which is hard and time consuming to do properly.
